Re: Any car shows coming up ?

A good show today, good club stands and auto jumble. MGs well represented by the various clubs. The MGB in the pic is on the MGs on Track stand- a rubber bumper conversion with a V8 under the bonnet....very nice.

electroplating

Has anyone any tips on diy electroplating. Thinking of giving it a go with zinc plating and poss chromate plating. Seems straight forward but i believe the secret is in the prep - getting the parts really clean.
Any tips appreciated.
Thanks

Re: Oddball 1975 MGB Convertible

Yes got a similar one manufactured may 1975. According to the book Original MGB there was a period about 12 months when the interior and under bonnet was still pre rubber bumper.
See my blog www.mymgb.info
A PO converted it from RB to CB.
